From the reports I hear the waters real low. But the pressure is low too. If you know how to fish the low water you can do good. Rains coming in this weekend tho should bring the river up and get the fish moving. Right now its a half pounder kinda show.

Released one today, probably around 20" and 2-3 pounds. It took a brass spoon. which has become one of my favorites. No pics of the fish, only time it came out of the water was when it jumped after taking my spoon. Great day on the water, met some cool folks.
